COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An IPA with a wry twist, Saranac Rye IPA is an aggressively hopped brew, sure to take your taste buds on an adventure. Weíve stepped away from the mold of typical IPAs and selected premium rye malt and a unique mix of spicy hops. Look for a crisp, brazen finish.

12oz bottle 7/27/13 (12 Beers of Summer 12pk)-Pours a hazy light amber with a small white covering. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of hops, rye, and malt. This medium bodied brew does not have a big rye presence but is not too shabby.

bitter finish this has black good pepper thru out. bottom of bottle has the settle so.... smooth and foamy with airy mouth feel that is not light. citrus grapefruit and some lemony sweetness.

Rather disappointing - not much in the way of hops or rye. I was looking for a good dose of rye spiciness but didnít find it. More like a normal IPA than a Rye one. Glad I had purchased only a single bottle.

bottle from mix pack. clear pale gold with a large white head. sweet canned orange syrup aroma. lots of fruity hops in the flavor. the rye isnít as spicy as usual. very basic, simple ipa.

November 2009. Not much of anything going on with this beer. Some weak malt aromas with caramel, but that is about it.

Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Thin off-white head of fine bubbles. Light corn aroma with some spices and weak malts. Rather bland aroma. Color is a light golden brown. Some rye in the flavor along with dry malts and a bit of astringent bitterness. Finishes light bitterness and some spices. A rather bland and unimpressive brew bt will likely go over well with the masses.

A slight hint of rye and/or carraway seeds. Very faint hoppiness and not too impressive a flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home, from Summer Variety Pack. Muted rye aroma. Piney hops profile, sticky mouth feel. Bitter, spicy, finish. Lacks oomph.

Another passable yet mediocre Saranac offering. Decent aroma of spicy hops. Average golden pour with a nice white head that leaves good lacing. Itís fairly light on the palate as it really isnít all that flavorful. Iím not getting much rye at all or even a traditional IPA hop taste. Itís more like a spicy ale. Ok.

Nephilium (1369) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Very faint rye aroma, pours a clear amber with a quickly fading white head. Thereís more rye in the flavor then in the aroma, but thereís still not a lot. The best of the beer is in the finish, where thereís a nice blend of hop bitterness and rye spice. This is really a middle of the road beer, itís drinkable, but nothing special.
